The Leadership Unstuck Podcast: Is That Church Built on a Big Personality or Jesus?

Magnetic. Inspiring. Charismatic. Visionary. God-given personality gifts or problems waiting to happen? Big personalities are attractive, and bad things happen when a church is built more on the big personality of the pastor than Jesus. But actually... that's true of any personality type.

What happens when people try to take control of the giftings God has given them? In this episode of The Leadership Unstuck Podcast, I talk to Amy Anderson, Director of Consulting at The Unstuck Group, about how to respond when a church is built around the personality of the pastor more than Jesus.

The giftings and wirings that God has given to each of us are good things. But when we try to take control over our giftings, they can be turned from our greatest strengths to our greatest weaknesses. This is why it is important for all of us to consider healthy boundaries when it comes to the gifts and personalities that God has put into us.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • How to recognize if a church is built around personality rather than Jesus.

  • Healthy boundaries to prevent this from happening in your church.

  • Practical steps to lead humbly.
